The Valley Women’s Club (VWC) is now taking applications to volunteer for the 2013 Redwood Mountain Faire and we hope you will sign up to work a shift and then stay for the rest of the day to enjoy the wonderful music, beautiful handmade arts and crafts, excellent food and beverages, and the lovely ambiance of the Faire in its pristine Redwood setting at Roaring Camp! When you volunteer for a shift on any day, you will receive complimentary admission to the Faire that day before or after your shift to stay and play! Additionally, the VWC (and all other workers from the SLV non-profits) receive a share of the proceeds from the Faire based on hours worked – last year we were awarded $10,000!
The Faire really needs your help this year for one or more shifts on Saturday, June 1st, and Sunday, June 2nd, and the volunteer sign up is now available on our website.

Here are the types of assignments available:

We were able to keep the ticket prices really affordable for the attendees because of the tireless work of you and the other wonderful volunteers, and the Faire was such a success that it was actually chosen as the “COMMUNITY EVENT FAVE” by the readers of the Press Banner!
Please forward this information to friends, family and anyone else who might be interested in a volunteer opportunity. Friends can also sign-up online. We look forward to working with you at this fun and successful festival!
About the Redwood Mountain Faire
The Valley Women’s Club of San Lorenzo Valley www.vwcweb.org started the Faire in the early 1980s as a way to feature the talent of local artists and artisans, and musicians, in a community event that would benefit nonprofit organizations too. It was extraordinarily successful for 18 years, and became the model for other festivals, including the Strawberry Festival. After a hiatus of many years, the community wanted it back, so back it came in a remarkable rebirth, at a beautiful new venue (Roaring Camp, thanks to Georgie Clark), in June, 2010. In a beautiful, expansive meadow graced with large oaks and surrounded by enormous redwoods, the 2013 Faire, on June 1 and 2, will feature 20 bands on two stages over two days. 50 or so fine artists and artisans will be featured. Children will enjoy a variety of activities provided for their entertainment. Delicious and unique foods will be available, along with beer from local micro-breweries and Santa Cruz Mountain wines for tasting. It’s a very special event and was recognized by the State Assembly, and by the County of Santa Cruz, for its contributions to the well-being of our community.
The purpose of the Redwood Mountain Faire is to bring together the people of the San Lorenzo Valley to celebrate community, to showcase arts and music, and to raise funds for diverse participating local non-profits and service organizations.
